Barry’s grandmother did not have long term care insurance. When she fell on ill health, she had to spend down her assets until she had none left. That experience had a profound effect on him—catalyzing his mission to help others avoid those kinds of hardships. He believes people should be able to age with dignity; to have their needs met as they get older; to feel like a joy and not a burden to their families; and to leave proud legacies behind.
Barry is excited to come into work every day to meet wonderful families—to help them plan for the future and provide them peace of mind. He’s excited to see the firm growing: The Siegel Law Group, P.A. now has offices in Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, Fort Lauderdale, Aventura and Miami. And he’s proudest when he hears how the firm’s work has touched clients (or their children) and feels rewarded by their positive comments and online reviews.
His greatest strength is his passion—for helping families plan for their future, protect their assets and achieve peace of mind through proper planning.
He has been active in the community through his long affiliation with Rotary and has served as his Club’s President in Boca Raton, Florida. Barry has lived in Boca Raton since 1998; he has a son, David, and a daughter, Amanda.
